December Holidays #IWSG and a Book Release Announcement with Launch Party Sign-up

Proof of Existence by @JLenniDorner

100x160 Fractions of Existence Proof of Existence by @JLenniDorner

🎉 I intend to release Proof of Existence on April 4, 2023. 🎆

It picks up where the first book left off. It is still an urban fantasy, though there is a bit more focus on the paranormal romance angle in this one. The main characters pass for the 18–29 age bracket, so it's still New Adult. (Though college is no longer one of Wend's primary concerns. She has something entirely different to learn now.) I hope to get a launch party going. If you are interested in helping out, please fill out this short form:

In the News:

"The Senate has passed the Respect For Marriage Act which protects both same sex marriage and interracial marriage."

This is a huge relief.

Shout-out to Alex and the awesome co-hosts for today:

Joylene Nowell Butler, Chemist Ken, Natalie Aguirre, Nancy Gideon, and Cathrina Constantine!

Dec 7 question - It's holiday time! Are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writer goals?

I'm planning for it to be a time to keep pace with my goals, as I've got a book launch planned. Historically though, I do fall behind.

Get that flash fiction out there!


  1. Congrats on your new release. I love the cover. I filled out your form to help out.

  2. Congratulations on your upcoming release! That is very exciting. :)

  3. That is good news! Also, I used the self-editing book years ago when I did my first ever draft. I found it quite useful and should probably pick up a copy to reference with my current WIP. Have you used it?

  4. That's awesome! Congratulations on your Nano win and next book.

  5. That's cool you have a new release coming!

  6. Congratulations on the upcoming release! I will certainly help out with that where I can. Have a lovely holiday season and an even better kick off to 2023.

  7. Grats on all your accomplishments! I hope you see great success with your new book.

  8. Congratulations! It's so exciting your new release is coming out in April. I usually fall behind during the holiday season too. I'm a little more lenient on myself in December, though. Come January, it's back to the grind!

  9. Congratulations on the new release! Good luck keeping up with everything :) I'm kind of taking a break this month.
